Seriously, my intent is not to start a firestorm, but I recently purchased a pair of Grado i225 whose cord had been upgraded to "Blue Dragon" line by Drew Baird at www.moon-audio.com. They sound great...not as good as either pair of Phiaton cans I have, but damned respectable. However, esp in prolonged listening sessions, they are just not comfy! Literally, I feel as though I am wearing a couple of kitchen sponges on my head!
I would like to hear other people's perspectives as well.
